RFS’ HYBRIFLEX Remote Radio Head (RRH) hybrid feeder cabling solution combines optical fiber and DC power for RRHs in a single lightweight aluminum corrugated cable, making it the world’s most innovative solution for RRH deployments.
This low-inductance version of HYBRIFLEX allows mobile operators deploying an RRH architecture to deploy >400ft sites without the danger of power-cycling their RRHs due to voltage swings, which could occur in some specific instances. It combines bend-insensitive single-mode fiber (4 pairs of DLC connectors), 2 pairs of low-inductance DC wires and 5 pairs of 18AWG wires used to carry alarm signals. The package also includes a special RFS-designed DC insulating boot, used to properly protect and insulate the DC wires after stripping the jacket, avoiding possible short-circuits while wiring it to the distribution boxes. Standard RFS CELLFLEX® accessories can be used with HYBRIFLEX cable.
